However, having said that let me direct you to Amethyst Angel's helpful guide to non fibreglass armour ^_^

Dude!! I made my Shana (from Dragoon) and that is what I used exactly!! (Cardboard and Vinyl) and when I make my Yuffie costume, I'm gonna use silver instead. (And Shower Curtains are REALLY cheap ^^).

I recommend Amethyst Angel's guide. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure going to when I make armor in the next month. XD

Metalwork isn't all too hard if you have the right tools. Its just time consuming. Get thin sheet aluminum or something. I have also heard of workings in fiberglass and some special sheet plastic stuff, but I am unfamiliar in those areas.
